Hi dear Nabamita! It is indeed a difficult situation to deal with a stubborn child. But when children are smart, we need smart parenting techniques to handle them. Some children like troubling their parents on purpose and do reverse of whatever they are told to do or in other words they wud do everything they are asked not to do. So it is advisable try ignoring, by looking in some other direction if u don't like what she is doing. And share ur thoughts only when she is doing something good by praising her. This way she will get the message 'Mummy will respond only when I do something good'. please do not feel embarrassed when u go to a mall or market as they also know children do such things. Rather take it as an opportunity to mend ur child's behaviour. Children at this age like to experiment and quench their curiosity by laying hands on things. If we say no to everything they feel irritated and rebellious and gain attention by purposely doing such things. U need to be patient, calm and easy on ur child. Scolding, spanking or getting angry wud make things difficult to handle. This should work!
